misspell - correct spelling



  edgood  —  Grammar Tips

misspell - verb

 

Not mispell.

When the last letter of a prefix (mis) matches the first letter of the root word (spell), you do not drop either the last letter of the prefix or the first letter of the root word. Thus: granddaughter and misspell.

Example: You should not misspell the word misspell. You must double the “s.”
